A concert will be held to conclude the Four Color Fest. The featured instrument of the evening will be the Haken Continuum, invented by Wolfgang Haken's son and UI Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty member Lippold. Continuum will be played by internationally renowned musician Rob Schwimmer, traveling from New York City for this event. Mr. Schwinner will be joined by UI faculty musicians Larry Gray (bass), William Moersch (percussion), Rudolf Haken (electric viola), and pianist Whitney Ash. Program will include classical, jazz blues, and rock genres (the synesthetic 4 colors) as well as original compositions and improvisations - a "Portrait in Four Colors" (with a nod to Charles Mingus' jazz classic Self Portrait in Three Colors).
